LESSology Challenge #10: Creative projects of Mandy Dodd, Dora Dekker and Tesa Broman


Hope you have all been inspired by the design team's floral delights! Today we get to see how Mandy Dodd, Dora Dekker and Tesa Broman tackled this challenge! :)

Mandy Dodd

Hi, it's Mandy here,
And I've actually called my dh in to help me! 
We had some old fence palings for ages that I was dying to do something with, so asked him to saw up and nail together some frames out of them with a solid backing.

I was thrilled when I saw them, glued  on a couple of  half flowerpots (from our dollar store) and dabbed on some paint....

Then it was about arranging some flowers and vines in them, adding in a little birds in nests...

with bows and a bit of moss

Hope you have as much fun with your interpretation for this challenge!

Thanks so much for looking


Dora Dekker

Such a fun challenge again!
I have used an old little record.
Painted it white 3 times and already know wich image to use, also a sentiment with flowers.
Actually a little project but I love the way it turned out.
You can send it as a card but also use it as a wall hanger.


Tesa Broman

Hi all! Tesa here with a wall art that started as a flower project where I had this idea of combining different materials to make a special flower and once done I liked it so much I put it on a canvas with a much needed reminder these days - BREATH!

The flower base is a fabbie crochet flower a dear friend made for me and the topper is a flower made out of aluminum tape, gesso and retro punch with a pearl in the center. Both the crochet flower and aluminum tape is colored with gesso. There are a lot of gesso on this one!

The base is old newspaper covered with gesso and the clothes pins are also painted with gesso and then stamped and heat embossed and then covered with a thin layer of gesso again to get a soft look.

I really like the pins, they make it really easy to change the message of the canvas - the day I don't need to breath... :)

Goodness! These are just the most delightful bloom projects right? We would love to see your take on LESSology Challenge #10: Floral Delight! :)
